The story of Babar/ by Jean de Brunhoff

THE STORY OF BABAR THE LITTLE ELEPHANT by Jean De Brunhoff is a delightfully illustrated account of tragedy, resilience, good fortune, progress, happiness, sorrows, roots, affection, generosity and responsibility of this amazing little elephant.  You may have to explain why the hunter shoots Babar`s mother or why Babar lives with a nice old lady in the lap of luxury or why the king ate poison mushrooms or why Babar marries his cousin but and do not let this stop you from sharing this classic with your young ones.  Seize this great opportunity to talk with them about the reality of loss and other issues.  The lesson to be learned is that life will not be perfect but we can only imagine what is possible!
